The Miniature Hit-to-Kill interceptor was designed to destroy RAM targets with the use of kinetic energy in body-to-body contact and works to prevent collateral damage, Lockheed said Tuesday.

The interceptor also works to support the U.S. Army's Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 ““ Intercept program that seeks to defend civilians and military forces from cruise missiles, unmanned aircraft system and RAM threats.

MHTK was launched during an engineering demonstration at White Sands Missile Range on Monday in an effort to advance the program and its integration with a multi-mission launcher, Lockheed added.
